Glock, Kubica 'positive' and 'pleased'

Former F1 driver Timo Glock says it did not take him long to adjust as he tested a BMW touring car before signing with the team.

Glock was left without a race-seat for this season after parting ways with the Marussia Formula One team earlier this week due to financial reasons.

However, just days later Glock was already back in action as he took part in a DTM test at Valencia with BMW team.

"My first impressions of the BMW M3 DTM were very positive," Glock told Autosport.

"It did not take me long to get used to the car, and I came to understand it better with every lap. The fact that we were able to test in all conditions, from wet to dry, was perfect."

It wasn't just the car, though, that Glock quickly adapted to, he also felt comfortable with the team and has subsequently been signed to race for them this season.

"I had a fantastic time in Formula One, but am now looking forward to battling for victories again with my old friends at BMW Motorsport. That is the approach I shall be taking to the challenge of the DTM."

Meanwhile, Robet Kubica, who is determined to return to Formula One in the future, tested a Mercedes AMG C-Coupé, putting in 114 laps in changeable conditions.

"My first day of testing in a DTM car was great fun and I learned a lot about the series and the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé," said the Pole.

"The first installation lap was in the dry, then a few heavy showers of rain came down and we had to wait for the track to dry out. All in all, it was a good experience, getting to know the car in different weather conditions.

"I was able to get to grips with the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé and felt very comfortable in the car, even though after my long break it meant adjusting to the high downforce that a state-of-the art DTM race car produces.

"I'm very pleased with my performance on this first day of DTM testing and had no problems whatsoever in the car."
